The UN Decides a Universal Ban on Revisionism
17 November 2005
On November 1st, unanimously and without a vote, the representatives of the 191 nations making up the UN adopted — or let be adopted — an Israeli-drafted resolution proclaiming January 27th “International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust”.
Moreover, the resolution “Rejects any denial of the Holocaust as an historical event, either in full or part”.
Historical revisionism thus sees its existence acknowledged by the whole world, a fact proving that it has some life in it, but, at the same time, this decision means that the revisionists find themselves struck with the reprobation of all the countries of the world.
As for the “State” of the Vatican, which has no seat at the UN, it had, as early as in 1992, declared: “There is no historical revisionism that can call into question the inhuman abyss of the Holocaust” (« Non c’è revisionismo storico che possa rimettere in discussione l’abisso disumano dell’Olocausto ») ( L’Osservatore Romano, 7 November1992).
The history of human societies and religions is rich in prohibitions, bannings, excommunications but, whereas, up to a recent past, the victims could, at least in principle, hope to find a refuge outside of their land or group of origin, here the condemnation is, for the first time ever, of universal character. It is thus confirmed that historical revisionism is a phenomenon of exceptional nature and also that the Jews, yet once more, have been able to obtain exorbitant privileges.
A sleight of hand by the Jews
It was through a sleight of hand that the Israeli delegation succeeded in getting this resolution passed. It proceeded in a manner like that of certain associations which, in France, under cover of a campaign against paedophilia, have obtained a law prohibiting, on the Internet, communication relating to paedophilia and … to revisionism! To begin, they asked: “Is paedophilia not a horror in itself?” The response was “yes”. Their second step was to add: “Is paedophilia on the Internet not to be banned by a specific law?” The response, there again, was “yes”. As a third step the associations concluded: “Let’s fight, accordingly, to obtain a law against paedophilia and … revisionism [which they called ‘negationism’]”. For his part, the President of the General Assembly, the Swede Jan Ellasion, had the deftness on November 1st to ask orally whether anyone was opposed to the resolution aimed at commemorating the “Holocaust”. No hands being raised, he declared, without prior recourse to a vote of any kind, that the resolution was thereby adopted, the text of which contained in one of its provisions the condemnation of any form of “Holocaust” revisionism. The draft was approved by the United States in utter disregard of the guarantees of freedom of opinion provided by the first amendment to its constitution. And, most remarkably, this Israeli text was accepted by the Arabo-Moslem countries, including Iran. All those present approved, or let pass with soft verbal restrictions, a resolution originating from the Jews that goes so far as to condemn the right of free research on a historical subject.
The UN act assumes only a political and not a juridical character. Still, since it provides that the Secretary General will have to report on the measures subsequently taken within the framework of the resolution, the revisionists will have reason to fear consequences for themselves of a judicial or administrative nature, for instance, as regards border and airport police, authorisation to enter and stay in certain countries or the issuing of visas. The resolution will serve morally to justify and facilitate extradition measures taken against revisionists.
Precedents are not lacking, what with
1) the European arrest warrant;
2) the virtual handing over of revisionist René-Louis Berclaz by Serbia to Switzerland;
3) the handing over of revisionist Ernst Zündel by the United States to Canada, then by Canada to Germany;
4) the handing over of Belgian revisionist Siegfried Verbeke by the Netherlands to Germany;
5) the handing over of revisionist Germar Rudolf to Germany by the United States.
6) In Austria, on November 11, the semi-revisionist David Irving, a British citizen, was arrested by traffic police on a motorway and is now in detention in Vienna.
For any noted revisionist it is already risky to leave the confines of his home country. In doing so, he exposes himself to a request for extradition made to the country of transit by either Israel or Germany. There is at present a bill in committee at the Knesset that will authorise Israel to demand the handing over of any revisionist in order to bring him before a court, sitting in Jerusalem, that will apply the 1986 Jewish antirevisionist law against him.
The Jewish State’s Offensive
A fortnight ago, Philippe Bolopion, United Nations correspondent for Le Monde, wrote a particularly informative article on the successes achieved at the UN by the Jewish State since June 2004 (“L’offensive de charme d’Israël à l’ONU rencontre un certain succès”, Le Monde, 4 November 2005, p. 3).
He listed six recent accomplishments of that State:
1) in June 2004, Kofi Annan called for an acknowledgement “that the United Nations’ record on anti-Semitism has at times fallen short of our ideals”;
2) in October of the same year, a resolution including a condemnation of antisemitism was adopted;
3) in January 2005, a special session of the General Assembly marked the 60th anniversary of “the liberation of the death camps”;
4) in June, an Israeli ambassador was elected vice-president of the General Assembly — the first Israeli in fifty-three years;
5) in September, on a visit to the UN for a gathering of heads of state and government, Ariel Sharon shook hands with Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf, while the Israeli delegation made numerous new contacts;
6) in October, the Security Council was quick to condemn the Iranian calls, which were nothing new, for the Jewish State to be erased from the map.
The Jewish State’s incomparable gall
These successes are all the more striking as no nation in the world has made fun of the UN like “Israel”, a state that, however, owes its creation to … the UN. The Jewish State, with an incomparable gall (in Jewish parlance: chutzpah), has thrown a record number of United Nations “resolutions” straight into the bin.
In violation of international law, this State, founded on the colossal lie of the “Holocaust”, practises colonialism, racism, apartheid, military occupation and torture. We may add that it possesses an arsenal of atomic weapons and on this score has, for example, in the last few years been supplied by Germany, free of charge, in the name of the said “Holocaust”, with three ultra-modern submarines fitted out for nuclear armament.
The collusion between, on the one hand, the Jewish State and armed forces and, on the other hand, the German State and armed forces has become such that the German mail service has just released a stamp, for the most regular rate of postage, depicting, on the left, the Israeli flag, then, on the right, the German flag and, finally, linking the two, a strand of barbed wire, symbol of the perpetual “Holocaust”. Germany is becoming the Jewish State’s “Guantanamo”.
On October 5, 2003, Israeli ambassador to the UN Dan Gillerman had warned the Security Council members that the God of the Jews was “watching” them and, on July 16 2004, annoyed at the behaviour of some Arab states, flung the remark at his colleagues in the General Assembly that things had “reached a point where the inmates are running the asylum”. On the other hand, on October 31 of this year, he said that he was “moved” when presenting the “Holocaust Day” text, his country’s first successful draft resolution ever. He declared: “I feel moved and privileged to present this historic resolution today, as an Israeli, a Jew, a human being and a child of a family of Holocaust victims”. That is understandable. The next day, the “adoption” of his resolution marked the triumph of the “Holocaust” sham. For the occasion, one may say that as far as gall, dishonest procedure, spirit of domination and intolerance are concerned, the Jewish State has outdone itself.
This extraordinary UN resolution also constitutes proof that historical revisionism is a reality that can no longer be bypassed, denied or played down. Its notoriety has become global. Still, let us take care to recognise that the revisionist researchers who remain active are now but a handful and, with each passing year, their future grows darker.

Vereinte Nationen (UNO) beschließen weltumfassendes Verbot für Geschichtsrevisionismus
Am 1. November wurde von allen Repräsentanten der 191 Nationen, die in den Vereinten Nationen vertreten sind, einstimmig und ohne vorausgegangene Wahl, eine in Israel konzipierte Resolution angenommen, die den 27. Januar als " Internationalen Gedenktag der Opfer des Holocausts" proklamiert. Zudem wird in der Resolution "jegliche Verleugnung des Holocaust als ganzes oder auch nur teilweise abgelehnt". Somit ist eindeutig, daß der historische Revisionismus existiert und weltweit Anerkennung findet, Tatsache also, daß er lebt. Gleichzeitig bedeutet dieser Beschluss ein Schlag ins Gesicht der Revisionisten weltweit. Was den "Staat" des Vatikans betrifft, der bei den Vereinten Nationen keinen Sitz einnimmt, hatte der Vatikan schon 1992 erklärt: "Es gibt keinen Geschichtsrevisionismus, der den inhumanen Abyssus des Holocaust in Frage stellen könnte."
Die Geschichte der Menschheit ist angehäuft mit Religionen, die Verbote, Sperren, Ächtungen, Exkommunikationen erlassen, und obwohl es bisher - zumindest in jüngster Vergangenheit - , für deren Opfer möglich war, ein Refugium außerhalb des Heimatlandes zu finden, wird [in dieser Reslolution] zum allererstenmal eine weltweite, allgemeingültige Verurteilung verhängt. Aus dieser Sicht, ist der Geschichtsrevisionismus ein Phänomen außerordentlicher Bedeutung, als auch die Tatsache, daß es den Juden erneut gelungen ist, sich maßlose Privilegien anzueignen.
Des Judenstaates unvergleichliches chuztpah
Der Erfolg [des Judenstaates] ist schon deshalb erstaunlich, da sich keine Nation der Welt mehr Hohn und Spott gegenüber den Vereinten Nationen erlaubt hat, als "ISR", der Staat, der immerhin seine Schöpfung den Vereinten Nationen verdankt. Dieser jüdische Staat hält den Weltrekord darin, "Resolutionen" der Vereinten Nationen schlichtweg vermüllt zu haben. Unter Verletzung internationalen Gesetzes, praktiziert dieser Staat, -- auf der kolossalen Lüge des "Holocausts" basierend -, Kolonialismus, Rassismus, Apartheit, militärische Besatzung und Folter. Es soll außerdem darauf hingewiesen sein, daß ISR über ein Arsenal nuklearer Waffen verfügt und daß hinsichtlich darauf, Deutschland ISR in den letzten Jahren im Namen des "Holocaust", drei ultra-moderne U-Boote mit nuklearer Ausstattung geschenkt hat. Fürder hat das deutsche Postwesen erst kürzlich eine Briefmarke für die allgemein gültige Frankierung eines Briefes innerhalb EU-Grenzen herausgegeben, die auf der linken Seite eine israelische , auf der rechten Seite eine deutsche Fahne zeigt. Verbunden sind beide [Fahnen] durch Stacheldraht, der den ewigen "Holocaust" symbolisiert. Deutschland ist somit das "Guantanamo" des Judenstaates geworden.
Diese außergewöhnliche Resolution der Vereinten Nationen, ist der Beweis, daß der Geschichtsrevisionismus eine Realität darstellt, die nicht länger umgangen, oder heruntergespielt werden kann. Seine Bedeutung ist global. Aber nur noch eine Handvoll Revisionisten sind derzeit handlungsfähig und die Zukunft wird finsterer von Jahr zu Jahr.
Israel uses Holocaust as ‘cover’ for its crimes, Iran charges Commemoration at UN marred by accusations
BY STEVEN EDWARDS
Publication: Ottawa Citizen;
Date: Jan 28, 2006;
• As the only United Nations member state whose leader has called for Israel’s destruction, Iran marked the world body’s first commemoration of the Holocaust yesterday by accusing the Israeli government of exploiting the Jewish people’s suffering for political gain.
The Islamic republic made the charge in an “explanation of position” as speakers in the UN General Assembly remembered the six million people — most of them Jews — killed in Nazi death camps during the Second World War.
“Iran condemns genocide against any race,” says the statement.
“Regrettably, the Zionist regime has routinely attempted to exploit the sufferings of the Jewish people in the past as a cover for its crimes being perpetrated today against Palestinians in the occupied territories, including massacre, demolition of houses, properties and farmlands, as well as acts of state terrorism.”
The statement stops short of repeating the call of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for Israel to be “wiped off the map,” but contains an additional warning reflecting his plans to hold a conference examining the scale of the Holocaust.
“Addressing historical events of horrific enormity, with a view to avoiding their recurrence, requires a commensurate degree of scientific scrutiny and rigour,” the Iranian statement says.
Mr. Ahmadinejad sparked outrage when he followed up his call for the destruction of Israel with a declaration the Holocaust was a “myth.”
Commemoration ceremonies across Europe yesterday saw leaders express concern over Iran’s ongoing anti-Israel stance.
“With dismay, we have had to note that today, even presidents insist on describing the Holocaust as a fairy tale and go so far as to make anti-Semitic remarks,” said Norbert Lammert, Germany’s parliamentary president.
The rising concern over Iran’s comments comes as the UN’s Vienna-based nuclear watchdog prepares to meet Thursday to consider whether action is necessary to curb Iran’s nuclear program.
For its part, Israel has for decades been heavily criticized and often condemned at the UN, but the General Assembly’s 191 member states agreed Nov. 1 to dedicate Jan. 27 to the memory of Holocaust victims.
Delegates burst into applause yesterday during an address by Israeli Ambassador Dan Gillerman, whose grandparents were killed in the Holocaust and whose parents fled the Nazis.
“I vow to you there will forever be an Israel,” he said, “so these horrors will never be witnessed again.”
UN Secretary General Kofi Annan called those who deny the Holocaust “bigots” as he met with survivors of the Auschwitz death camp and young people in Zurich, Switzerland.
He also questioned why “there were so few” people like Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat and businessman who helped save thousands of Hungarian Jews during the war.
The UN, however, has come under fire in recent years for failing to prevent genocides in Rwanda in 1994 and one still unfolding in the Darfur region of Sudan.
The date of the commemoration marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz camp.
While Iran was part of the international agreement to recognize the day, the resolution passed by “consensus,” meaning no country objected or called for an open vote.
